The Summer school on “3D Surveying and Modelling in Cultural Heritage” took place on June 16-22, 2013 in Paestum (Italy).

The Summerschool was organized by FBK Trento  and by the University of Salerno  and had 26 participants who were selected out of more than 50 applicants.

The Summerschool featured two days of lectures, followed by days focussing on data acquisition and processing. The participants learned the basics of surveying and modelling, including topography, photogrammetry and laser scanning. Different instruments and platforms were employed to acquire the data in the archaeological area and at the national museum, ranging from terrestrial digital cameras to UAV, from TOF laser scanner to triangulation-based active sensors.

The 3D-ICONS project and its activities were presented to the participants to let them aware of the on-going work and future enrichment of Europeana. Between the 3D-ICONS partners, Politecnico di Milano was present with Gabriele Guidi and Sara Gonizzi as lecturers and tutors for the students. FBK Trento was present with Fabio Remondino, Fabio Menna and Erica Nocerino.
